    A Woman With Ebola Escaped Quarantine And Is On The Run In A City Of 1 Million

    Freetown Sierra Leone Ebola Victim Is Missing - Business Insider

    FREETOWN Sierra Leone officials appealed for help on Friday to trace the first known resident in the capital with Ebola whose family forcibly removed her from a Freetown hospital after testing positive for the deadly disease.

    Radio stations in Freetown, a city of around 1 million inhabitants, broadcast the appeal on Friday to locate a woman who tested positive for the disease that has killed 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak was first identified in February.

    "Saudatu Koroma of 25 Old Railway Line, Brima Lane, Wellington," the announcement said. "She is a positive case and her being out there is a risk to all. We need the public to help us locate her."

    Koroma, 32, a resident of the densely populated Wellington neighborhood, had been admitted to an isolation ward while blood samples were tested for the virus, Health ministry spokesman Sidi Yahya Tunis said. The results came back on Thursday.

    "The family of the patient stormed the hospital and forcefully removed her and took her away," Tunis said. "We are searching for her."

    Fighting one of the world's deadliest diseases is straining the region's weak health systems, while a lack of information and suspicion of medical staff has led many to shun treatment.
    Not sure what to say to this. This is just awful

    Scary disease movies start out like this! Ebola was always a relatively minor threat because it usually occurred in more rural areas and its high and rapid mortality rate made it pretty easily contained. An infected person running around a city of 1 millions is absolutely terrifying.

    Could you say she's a positive role model?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
